Congrats and good luck to you all.


I work fulltime as an embedded software engineer and tried my luck at upwork to make some extra cash on the side. I tried and tried and tried never got a single project. Some projects I even said for the first few weeks I'll work for free but no luck. Not sure what is needed to get the foot in the door. It's not like I do not have the relevant skills, this is my bread and butter. Gave up and now do uber, or food delivery on the side. No job is small. Need to make extra money to send to family in Pakistan.
Brother, I don't know about upwork, but you can start giving orders to yourself from some friends from different countries. One very important thing, contact with someone who is already working on upwork. Try on Fiverr as well. I will be your first client.

Do it wisely, otherwise you will be caught

I am really happy for the members who have found so much success as freelancers. This is something the media should be promoting to highlight Pakistan’s soft image as an emerging tech based economy. And the government should be helping this sector by providing office spaces with good internet and snacks. In the long term, this can have multiplier affect.

@waz can you please move this thread to the technology forum?
